It was either that for the title or “International Plant of Mystery”, and I decided to go the milk carton route. No idea why.
Anyway, I’ve got some new photos of the Mystery Plant – once known as the Mystery Seed or Mystery Seedling. Definitely a fully-accredited plant now. Since I eradicated the only bush in the yard there’s no sense beating around it. Here’s the pictures.
Nice overall shot.
Up close view of the newest and hairiest leaf. (Hair seems to wear off as the leaf matures)
The plant was knocked around a bit accidentally and two leaves were damaged but it doesn’t seem to care.
Note the “lumpy” leafy protrusions under the main leaf body. Newer leaves seem to be making more of these
Nice side view, you can see the seed leaves (cotyledons) are still here.
So… anyone know what I’ve got here? I’m still thinking it’s a Collard but I’m not sure which one (other than “not Georgia” since I have some of those.)
